and then the planning

19 Mar

Being the planner that I am;

a. minored in event planning

b. used a homework planner my whole life

c. still use a planner

d. love organizing

Everyone told me to relax and enjoy the first few days of being engaged. I was so shocked and it didn’t feel real, even to this day I still find it weird to say “my wedding” or “my fiance” or “at my engagement party”. But once I had that ring on my finger I could not sit still, I needed that summer wedding and needed to find that date and venue.LIKE ASAP! So I did what I do best and I started calling/ stalking , whatever you want to call it- every bridal salon and every venue in an hour distance that had an outside.

THE VENUE;

since my beach wedding, my destination wedding, and my backyard wedding were all out of the question, I had to figure a few things out.

1. how many people do you hold- this was my first question- most places dont hold more than about 250 ppl, because most weddings in this country don’t have more than that but lets not forget I am a WEJ, so that alone raises my amount to over 450….

2. do you do outside catering… as in kosher

3. do you have outside ceremony options….

4. now; which dates do you even have available in June┬áthe most popular wedding month…

5. make appointments to go see venue after venue (I saw about 15 places)

6. have anxiety because everywhere is booked and everyone thinks I am asking for 2016 wedding dates, NO!

7. Good news is I got a place, a place I originally said DEFINITELY NOT DOING IT THERE, but lets just say it has a lot of positive checks.
